Touring various countries, the Geminoid F android recently made its debut in Hong Kong, wowing the crowds with her human-like behavior.
The artificial intelligence-equipped cyborg, created by Hiroshi Ishihguro, is intentionally programmed to mimic 65 behaviors, which is the most by any robot thus far. Surprisingly, this smart android is also one of the cheapest ones ever made, costing around $110,000 only.
Singing Utada Hikaru's Hear Me Cry, Geminoid F conjured emotions throughout like a real singer, tilting her head and closing her eyes as she impressed onlookers. As if she wasn't realistic-looking enough, this human replicate will soon be improved as its creator Ishiguro will begin "predict[ing] all the ways people will use [them]," so he can "improve his creations."
